Wikipedia affirms the commonality of CRUD in user interfaces: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Create,_read,_update_and_delete#User_interface. However, admin/content/taxonomy/tanonomyID is missing one of the atomic CRUD operations: delete. That operation requires a three step process:
- Click edit link.
- Click Delete button.
- Click Delete button (on different page).
Please expose delete as a first-order function on the taxonomy list page.
I suspect this is a Drupal design pattern. If so, I hope it can be revisited for the entire product.
